Romney is committed to repealing Obamacare and dramatically reducing federal spending, and he knows that we must reform entitlement programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid if we are to tackle the debt crisis.
Romney recognizes the continuing threat posed by rabidly anti-gay radical Islamic regimes. He will support Israel and do what it takes to prevent terrorist mad men like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
Unlike Obama, Romney isn’t a career politician. He hasn’t been a part of the Washington crowd that got us into the mess we are in today. Indeed, it is his experience in the private sector that has most prepared him to be president. During his time at Bain Capital, Romney oversaw the restructuring, downsizing and refocusing of companies. Thanks to Romney’s efforts, previously bloated, inefficient and failed companies were turned around. He can turn around the bloated, inefficient and failed federal government too.
On issue after issue, Mitt Romney offers a vastly different — and unquestionably better — approach than the failed approach of Barack Obama. For gay Americans, and for those who care about gay Americans, the choice for president is an easy one. We simply cannot afford four more years of Barack Obama.
